Happy Samhain's Eve

Don't forget to leave some treats out for the wee folk, lest you don't wake up on the morrow ;)






Set the turnips aglow and enjoy the shenanigans and festivities this Hallow's Eve!

The scotch and cake goes out at eleven o'clock. Do you know how much scotch and cake COSTS? Do you think they'd like a packet of crisps as well? Saving the video for an apres bath treat.

Smokey Bacon sprinkled with beetles wings ;)
I did try to encourage cheese and onion but they're hardened carnivores!

Watched the video, Mel. Right up my street as usual. Hints of Eraserhead, and a bit of Terry Gilliam at the end. And that guitar music was just what I used to do with my guitar sometimes, just to make a surreal sound. Some evident symbolism, too, but for me the fun of the surreal is the sense of being enthralled by something I don't understand, so I don't try to work it out. It was personally appropriate as well, given my experiences with rats and birds this year. Great stuff, dark lady.

What a wonderful post! Happy Hallow's Eve to you too! I don't think I will ever get tired of watching this movie, since it's my favorite stop motion. I just love watching those beetles creeping out of the cake.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and Hallow's Eve.

Hi Jeff, thought it would be ;) I agree, better to absorb it than reason it all out, no need to suffocate the enjoyment of the surreal with logic.

Thank you Evelyn, I know what you mean, there's something about insects climbing out of a pristine cake that's very satisfying ;)

Hope you a had a great one Melanie! I really like the look of that video but my connection's so weak tonight it's taking a year to buffer. I'm just going to have to come back again tomorrow to watch it :) Well, hope you're having a lovely night!
